Introducing “The Memory Stroll”, a new event for 2019
The Hartlepool branch of Co-op Funeralcare, based in Strathmore House have pledged their support to a new event in aid of local Hospice care.
The Memory Stroll, organised by and in aid of Alice House Hospice is a peaceful Sunday morning stroll along Hartlepool’s historic Headland on 28 April, starting and ending at the Heugh Battery Museum.
Walkers are encouraged to dedicate the walk to a loved one and raise sponsorship in their memory. All who take part will receive a commemorative badge and keepsake card, the latter of which will display the names of those being remembered. On the day, walkers will also receive free access to the Battery Museum and refreshments will be on sale in the site café.
Co-op Funeralcare were keen to sponsor this event with its themes of tribute and remembrance. The Funeral Provider’s Estate Planning Lead, Daniel Laughton recently visited the local charity to discuss plans for the event and is looking forward to being involved.
Daniel said “This will be a lovely event for our local communities and we are very proud to be sponsors. Most importantly, I hope that we can help to raise lots of money for such a vital and much loved charity.”
Carol Sennett, Corporate Fundraiser at Alice House said “We are delighted to be working with Daniel and his colleagues at Co-op Funeralcare – this generous sponsorship has given our event a great boost and helps ensure that our patients and their families can continue to receive the care that they need. It is great to have such a well-respected local organisation behind us on this project.”
The Memory Walk is suitable for people of all ages and registration is open now.
